Continuity mistake: In the forest, when Hermione is sitting with her back against a tree, reading, the book changes position between shots after Harry walks over to her. In a close-up, the top of the book is over her knees, in the following wide-shot, the book is below her knees, and then moves back to its original position in the next shot. (01:33:10)

Continuity mistake: At the Ministry of Magic, as Yaxley is reprimanding Ron, who is disguised as Reg Cattermole, the initial on Yaxley's Ministry tie pin changes direction. In one shot, the letter "M" is tilted to the left, and in a subsequent shot, it's slanted in the opposite direction.

He's wearing a silver pendant in the shape of the Deathly Hallows symbol. In the close-up of the jewelry, it is over his yellow vest. In the consecutive medium shot, it is partly under the same vest.

Continuity mistake: When Hermione removes her parents' memories at the start of the film, she points her wand at them and says "Obliviate", turning her wand hand so that her palm faces inwards/upwards. In the very next shot, however, her palm is facing outwards/downwards, with no time to change in between. (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: When Hermione and Harry are sitting on the rocks by the cliff, Hermione is putting down a closed book. When the camera angle switches to seeing Hermione from behind, it appears the wind has blown the book open, but when the camera switches back to a front view, the book is closed again. One final switch, and the book is open yet again, flapping in the wind. (01:23:15)

Question: Ron, Harry, and Hermione use polyjuice potion a lot. I'm confused as to how this is. In The Chamber of Secrets it is revealed that it takes a month to make. It would seem unlikely that Hermione would carry around a cauldron and potion ingredients and waste a month making the potion after they had a plan. If Hermione had made them over the summer, she would have only had time to make a few before she would have to leave with Harry and Ron. How do they get all their polyjuice potion?

Jennifer Smith

Chosen answer: It's explained a little more in the book. Hermione swiped Mad-Eye Moody's stock of the potion when Mrs. Weasley wasn't looking. And it's possible that, when they ran low, she simply replicated it with a Doubling Charm.
